John Stuart Mill - El ​utilitarismo
Este ​tratado de filosofía moral, que ocupa un lugar clave dentro de la obra de John Stuart Mill (1806-1873), contiene tanto enunciados de hecho como valoraciones implícitas respecto al mundo, la humanidad y la felicidad. «El mérito de Mill ­-señala Esperanza Guisán-­ radica en que supo combinar inteligentemente los datos que le ofrecía la experiencia para formular, proponer e imaginar un mundo que resultase más deseable y una convivencia que pareciese más satisfactoria y más gozosa.» «El utilitarismo» muestra, por un lado, que el logro de la felicidad humana implica la puesta en marcha de una serie de resortes morales, y por otro, que el ideal de la máxima felicidad del mayor número constituye el criterio mismo de la moralidad. Completa el volumen «Un sistema de la lógica», que esboza de manera clara los supuestos metaéticos de Mill.Prólogo y traducción de Esperanza Guisán

John Stuart Mill - On ​Liberty, Utilitarianism and Other Essays
'it ​is only the cultivation of individuality which produces, or can produce, well developed human beings' Mill's four essays, 'On Liberty', 'Utilitarianism', 'Considerations on Representative Government', and 'The Subjection of Women' examine the most central issues that face liberal democratic regimes - whether in the nineteenth century or the twenty-first. They have formed the basis for many of the political institutions of the West since the late nineteenth century, tackling as they do the appropriate grounds for protecting individual liberty, the basic principles of ethics, the benefits and the costs of representative institutions, and the central importance of gender equality in society. These essays are central to the liberal tradition, but their interpretation and how we should understand their connection with each other are both contentious. In their introduction Mark Philp and Frederick Rosen set the essays in the context of Mill's other works, and argue that his conviction in the importance of the development of human character in its full diversity provides the core to his liberalism and to any defensible account of the value of liberalism to the modern world.

John Stuart Mill - Utilitarianism
An ​influential contributor to social theory, political theory, and political economy, his conception of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control. He was a proponent of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by Jeremy Bentham, although his conception of it was very different from Bentham's. Hoping to remedy the problems found in an inductive approach to science, such as confirmation bias, he clearly set forth the premises of falsification as the key component in the scientific method. Mill was also a Member of Parliament and an important figure in liberal political philosophy. John Stuart Mill’s view on liberty, which was influenced by Joseph Priestley and Josiah Warren, is that the individual ought to be free to do as he wishes unless he harms others. Individuals are rational enough to make decisions about their good being and choose any religion they want to. Government should interfere when it is for the protection of society. Mill explains, “The sole end for which mankind are warranted, individually or collectively, in interfering with the liberty of action of any of their number, is self-protection. That the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not sufficient warrant. He cannot rightfully be compelled to do or forbear because it will be better for him to do so, because it will make him happier, because, in the opinion of others, to do so would be wise, or even right... The only part of the conduct of anyone, for which he is amenable to society, is that which concerns others. In the part which merely concerns him, his independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.”

John Stuart Mill - On ​politics and society
Although ​he wrote extensively for fifty years, Mill's reputation as the philosopher of liberalism is largely based on three books published within a short space of five years: On liberty (1859); Considerations on representative government (1861); Utilitarianism (1863). Such a selective record offers a very partial view of Mill's scope as a political theorist, and one that largely ignores the restless and questioning approach which was central to his work. In John Stuart Mill on politics and society Geraint L. Williams provides a new selection from the whole range of Mill's political writings to present a comprehensive view both of the structure of Mill's thought and of the development of his political thinking from the 1820s to the 1870s.

John Stuart Mill - Sobre ​la libertad
“Sobre ​la libertad” es una vibrante defensa de la libertad de pensamiento y expresión, una apasionada apología de la tolerancia y el respeto debido a las creencias o minorías disidentes, una audaz reivindicación de la espontaneidad y singularidad humana frente a la opresión ejercida por las autoridades, la costumbre o la opinión. Precedido por un esclarecedor prólogo de Isaiah Berlin, el presente ensayo de John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) pertenece a la breve galería de obras de combate político que, aun décadas o siglos después de ser escritas, siguen determinando los comportamientos de los hombres.

John Stuart Mill - A ​System of Logic: Ratiocinative and Inductive
Mill's ​Logic, first published in 1843, became an instant cult book, and firmly established Mill as the leader of the empirical school of logic. A System of Logic is the first major installment of his comprehensive restatement of an empiricist and utilitarian position. It begins the attack on "intuitionism" which Mill carried on throughout his life, and makes plain his belief that social planning and political action should rely primarily on scientific knowledge, not on authority, custom, revelation, or prescription.

John Stuart Mill - La ​esclavitud femenina
En ​palabras de Emilia Pardo Bazán, éste es un «libro extraño, radical, fresco y ardoroso, que en nombre del individualismo reclama la igualdad de los sexos y que con el más exacto raciocinio y la más apretada dialéctica pulveriza los argumentos y objeciones que pudiesen oponerse a la tesis.» La esclavitud femenina es uno de los primeros tratados de la historia del pensamiento que aborda la igualdad entre los sexos desde múltiples perspectivas, escrito por uno de los pensadores que contribuyó a establecer las bases ideológicas de las actuales democracias occidentales. Escrito en plena época del conservadurismo victoriano inglés, la obra muestra que la lucha por la igualdad de la mujer viene desde muy atrás. Sin embargo, hoy es un libro casi olvidado —a pesar de que éste sea un tema de máxima actualidad y debate en la sociedad española— que merece ser difundido y, además, en la magnífica traducción y con el prólogo de Emilia Pardo Bazán, una de las primeras mujeres españolas que lucharon abiertamente por la igualdad entre los sexos en nuestro país.

John Stuart Mill - A ​szabadságról / Haszonelvűség
" ​Az egyén szabadsága Mill számára nem valami abszolút cél, hanem inkább eszköze az emberiség általános haladásának. A választási szabadság sokféleséget és kísérletezést tesz lehetővé, a sokféleség és a kísérletezés pedig lehetővé teszi a mind vonzóbb életformák fölfedezését." S. Hampshire, 1960 " A jó társadalom boldog emberekből áll, és Mill nem hagyja homályban , hogy mi teszi boldoggá az embert. Az, hogy jelleme önálló, észszerűen méri fel a világot, toleráns, érdeklődése tág, és magától támad benne szimpátia mások iránt. Erőszakkal senkit sem lehet ilyenné tenni, sőt, az erőszak logikailag ellentmond az ilyen jellem kialakulásának." A. Ryan, 1970 " Mill a függetlenséget az egyenlőség tartozékának tekinti. Az olyan törvények, melyek azon az alapon korlátoznak akár csak egyetlen embert is, hogy az illető nem képes eldönteni, mi a jó neki, megtagadják tőle az őt jogosan megillető függetlenséget." R. Dworkin, 1978

John Stuart Mill - A ​szabadságról
Millnek ​ez a bő másfél évszázada, 1859-ben kiadott írása a klasszikus liberalizmus egyik alapműve. Miközben kortársai és barátai – többek között David Ricardo és Jeremy Bentham – a liberalizmus közgazdasági elméletét dolgozzák ki, Mill elsősorban a politikai és kulturális liberalizmus eszmerendszerét alapozza meg. E művével Mill az egyéni szabadság, az alapvető személyiségi jogok védelmezőjeként lép fel, s főként arról elmélkedik, hogyan lehet és kell megvédeni az egyént az állam, a kisebbséget pedig a többség zsarnokságától. A politikai gondolkodásra a mai napig komoly hatást gyakorló Mill-esszé az egyéni függetlenség azon területét igyekszik meghatározni, amelyen belül az adott személy abszolút úr, s nem kell törődnie sem az állam vagy a közvélemény elvárásaival, sem a többség erkölcsi normáival.

John Stuart Mill - On ​Liberty
John ​Stuart Mill is one of the few indisputably classic authors in the history of political thought. On Liberty, first published in 1851, has become celebrated as the most powerful defense of the freedom of the individual and it is now widely regarded as the most important theoretical foundation for Liberalism as a political creed. Similarly, his The Subjection of Women, a powerful indictment of the political, social, and economic position of women, has become one of the cardinal documents of modern feminism. This edition brings together these two classic texts, plus Mill's posthumous Chapters on Socialism, his somewhat neglected examination of the strengths and weaknesses of various forms of Socialism. The Editor's substantial Introduction places these three works in the context both of Mill's life and of nineteenth-century intellectual and political history, and assesses their continuing relevance.

John Stuart Mill - On ​Liberty / The Subjection of Women
A ​prodigiously brilliant thinker who sharply challenged the beliefs of his age, the political and social radical John Stuart Mill was the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century. Regarded as one of the sacred texts of liberalism, his great work On Liberty argues lucidly that any democracy risks becoming a 'tyranny of opinion' in which minority views are suppressed if they do not conform with those of the majority. Written in the same period as On Liberty, shortly after the death of Mill's beloved wife and fellow-thinker Harriet, The Subjection of Women stresses the importance of equality for the sexes. Together, the works provide a fascinating testimony to the hopes and anxieties of mid-Victorian England, and offer a compelling consideration of what it truly means to be free.
